Film Screening

June 23 @ 1:00 pm 5:00 pm

Join Houston DSA for a screening of Pride (2014). Based on a true story in the UK, the movie follows Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners (LGSM), a queer alliance dedicated to supporting the British miners’ strike in 1984-1985. As we observe Pride Month, we remind ourselves that the original Pride was a riot. It is an answer to violent state repression, persecution, discrimination, and theocratic authoritarianism. It is part of a wave of revolutionary thought that connects the liberation of LGBTQIA+ folks with women’s rights, immigrant rights, climate justice, abolition, worker solidarity, and a free Palestine. Our struggles for collective liberation are inextricably linked, and the film reminds us that solidarity is a movement led by a diverse and unshakeable working class and not by pinkwashing corporations. Join us for a film with refreshments and a discussion to follow.
